Rahm Emanuel Says Trump “Exaggerates” Chicago’s Crime

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is playing the blame game for his city’s rampant crime on President Trump and the Justice Department. At CNN’S citizen conference in New York, Obama’s former Chief of Staff opined, “It’d be nice to have a Justice Department that works with you [rather] than try to exaggerate problems.” Emanuel’s remarks come after President Trump called out Chicago officials for failing to “do their job” and stop the violence. Curiously, Emanuel was not clear on what exactly the Trump administration was exaggerating and has yet to dispute the 455 homicides in Chicago this year or the 650 last year. Per usual, the solution is as plain as the nose on the liberal’s face. Gun control and Chicago’s crime wave don’t mix well.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel accused President Trump of exaggerating the Windy City’s crime problem for political gain, and added that “it’d be nice to have a Justice Department that works with you than try to exaggerate problems.”

There were 650 homicides in the city last year and 762 in 2016; so far this year, there have been 455 homicides in Chicago, according to the Sun-Times’ list. Most of the deaths have been due to gun violence.

“We’re going to straighten it out. We’re going to straighten it out fast. There’s no reason for what’s going on there,” Trump said earlier this month at a law enforcement convention in Orlando. “I know the law enforcement people in Chicago, and I know how good they are. They could solve the problem if they were simply allowed to do their job and do their job properly and that’s what they want to do. So Chicago, we are going to start working with you as of today.”

AOC Compares Fighting Climate Change to Fighting Nazis

Democratic Socialist candidate for the U.S. House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on the record claiming that fighting climate change is akin to fighting Nazis during World War II. She argued that global warming is the first “existential threat” since Hitler ravaged Europe. Along with her wholesale dismissal of the threats from Communism and radical Islam, Ocasio-Cortez explained that mobilizing and fighting Nazis provided us the “blueprint of doing this before.” So, um, do we need an Operation Overlord against global warming? What would a D-Day against “climate change” look like exactly? And would we call that “Green Day”? Because Earth Day is already meaningless.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Democratic Socialist candidate for the House of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a video that reaching the goal of 100 percent renewable energy to fight climate change requires the same urgency and mobilization in the United States as it did to fight Nazi Germany during World War II.
Calling Nazi Germany the last “existential threat” the United States has faced, Ocasio-Cortez ignored more recent threats, including radical Islam’s attack on U.S soil that killed almost 3,000 innocent Americans on September 11, 2001.

“So when we talk about existential threats — the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II,” Ocasio said in a video filmed at an undated campaign at an unknown location.

Texas Dems Bringing “Foreign Influence” to Midterms

Texas Democrats have been caught red-handed sending voting applications to illegal immigrants with prechecked citizenship boxes…you know the one that an individual can go to jail for if they’re noncitizens! Adding to the evidence is that these applications were specifically circulated in the Rio Grande Valley, an area with a substantial illegal immigrant population. The Texas Democratic Party is under formal investigation after the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a nonprofit, sounded the alarm and alerted both state and federal authorities. More proof that voter fraud strategies are alive and well on the left.

Here’s more from Fox News…

The Texas Democratic Party is under investigation after being accused of sending out voter-registration applications to non-citizens with the citizenship box already checked “Yes.”

The possible violation was first raised Thursday by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a nonprofit specializing in election integrity, which alerted both state and federal authorities.

Following the reports of the alleged violation, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the issue is “is being investigated” and “there will be serious consequences” if confirmed.

“A complaint says the Texas Democratic Party asked noncitizens to register to vote, sending applications with citizenship box pre-checked. This is being investigated. If true there will be serious consequences,” he wrote in a tweet.

Hillary2020: Here We Go Again.

Hillary Clinton’s prominence in the headlines promoting incivility and POTUS Trump as Public Enemy #1 may just be part of her campaign strategy to win the next presidential election. According to a top aide and ally, the failed 2016 presidential candidate is doing nothing to deny rumors that she will jump back into the fray. Just last week she appeared to do #MeToo damage control over the optics surrounding the Monika Lewinsky affair between her husband, then President Slick Willy, and the infamous White House intern in the blue dress. Hillary claimed her husband did not abuse power because Lewinsky was an “adult.” Translation: as long as there’s consent, there’s no abuse.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Hillary Clinton is giving signs that she is seriously mulling another run for the White House, and a top aide and ally is not dissuading people from believing just that.

Clinton has been communicating with reporters covering the White House, having convinced herself her sour relationship with the press sabotaged her 2016 presidential effort, according to Politico, which reports that after President Trump criticized ABC News’ Cecilia Vega at a news conference, Clinton left a voicemail for Vega.

Clinton penned a new afterword for her book “What Happened” that includes her current attempts to frame Trump’s actions as an “assault on our democracy.” Cleaning up the mess left by her husband’s sexual behavior in the wake if the #MeToo movement, she insisted last week that his affair with aide Monica Lewinsky was not an abuse of power because Lewinsky was an “adult.”

Warren Keeps Clinging to Her 1/1024 “Native” Roots

U.S. Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-MA) just doesn’t know when to move on to the next sales pitch. With just three weeks to go before ballots are cast in the 2018 midterms, Warren is now trying to portray herself as a victim of President Trump when all she wanted to do was be “transparent.” According to a Boston Globe report, Fauxcahontas only wanted to stop President Trump’s (and her opponents’) “constant taunting.” Of course, she has only fanned the flames and now says there is a difference between identifying as Native American and claiming to be part of a Native American group, which is her best defense against the outright rejection of belonging she received from the Cherokee Nation. It’s a good reminder that all lies eventually come back around.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who claimed to be Native American when a DNA study showed she has as little as .09% Indian blood, is still trying to explain away her assertion.

Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat running for re-election who President Trump has dubbed “Pocahontas” for her claim, released the results of the DNA test on Sunday with about three weeks to go before Election Day in an attempt to “begin deflecting the constant taunting from the president and her Senate challengers,” The Boston Globe reported.

“I have an election,” Warren said. “Donald Trump goes in front of crowds multiple times a week to attack me. Both of my opponents have made the same attack. I got this analysis back, and I made it public.”

The move turned out to be a PR disaster. While the mainstream media happily went along with the notion that 1/1,024 heritage actually makes someone Native American, many mocked Warren for the bizarre claim. Trump himself joined in, writing on Twitter: “Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public.

McCaskill Not So “Moderate” According to Hidden Camera

Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe has struck again. This time he’s caught Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) on candid camera admitting that she’s hiding a gun-grabbing agenda. Her position isn’t all that surprising coming from the left, but considering that McCaskill portrays herself as a “moderate” before Missouri voters, it’s a bit of a problem. And the only thing preventing a total ban of high-capacity magazines and AR-15s is control of the House. More alarming still are the remarks of a staffer caught on camera saying that “. . . a semi-automatic rifle ban is more so what she would support.” This is what we refer to as an October surprise, and O’Keefe may have just ensured that the GOP actually gains seats in the U.S. Senate.

Here’s more from American Thinker…

Incumbent Democratic senator Claire McCaskill is locked in a tight re-election battle with Republican challenger Josh Hawley, with both candidates slugging it out in a race becoming more and more personal the closer we get to election day.

McCaskill has tried to portray herself as a “moderate” Democrat, in tune with Missouri voters on most issues, while trying to hide some of her more radical views. This became clear when Project Vertias’s James O’Keefe unleashed his hidden cameras on staffers for McCaskill who let slip that the senator is concealing an anti-gun agenda.

MCCASKILL: “Well if we elect enough Democrats we’ll get some gun safety stuff done. They won’t let us vote on it, we’ve got 60 votes for a number of measures that would help with gun safety, but McConnell won’t let ’em come to the floor.”

JOURNALIST: “Like bump stocks, ARs and high capacity mags…?”

St. Lawrence Wants to Revoke Sen. Collins’ Honorary Degree Because of Kavanaugh

Nearly 2,000 alumni and faculty from Sen. Susan Collins’ (R-ME) prestigious alma mater, St. Lawrence University, want to revoke her honorary degree because she voted for Justice Kavanaugh. Or, to be more specific, she favors innocence for those not yet proven guilty. Of course, it all makes sense when the context of this honorary degree is considered. It – an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters – was awarded because she did not vote to repeal ObamaCare. In the wake of the Kavanaugh kerfuffle, however, the letter ironically – and rather hysterically – proclaims that she lacks “the integrity and commitment to justice that we expect from the St. Lawrence body.” These days justice is whatever the left decides it is.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Nearly 2,000 alumni and faculty members from Sen. Susan Collins’ (R-ME) alma mater have demanded the university revoke her most recent honorary degree to “dismantle rape culture.”

Collins received an honorary degree from St. Lawrence University in 2017 – an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters – because she did not vote to repeal Obamacare. But now that she has voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, she lacks “the integrity and commitment to justice that we expect from the St. Lawrence body,” according to a letter signed by more than 1,300 alums.

So, if she does something liberal liberals like, she gets rewarded. If she does something liberals don’t like, she must be punished.

The letter claims Collins should lose the honorary degree “in support of truth and for all of the victims of sexual assault and violence, of which many of her fellow alumni and students have suffered.”

Kasich is the Only Man Shocked in America

Former 2016 GOP presidential candidate and current Ohio Gov. John Kasich was “shocked” to hear Hillary lecturing the country on civility. Nice guy that he is, during a ‘bipartisan cooperation’ meeting with Colorado’s Democrat Gov. Hickenlooper, Kasich wondered if “maybe she got up on the wrong side of [the] bed.” Hillary argued last week, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for…if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate’ that’s when civility can start again.” Translation: Democrats will only be civil when they’re in power…except that they weren’t when they were. Recall the fight over Obamacare wherein anyone opposed was labeled a racist. Memo to Kasich: this is straight from the Dems’ playbook.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who is still publicly undecided on a 2020 run for the White House, dismissed political rhetoric pushing the “zero-sum game that I’m going to vanquish my opponent.”

Kasich was asked in a joint interview with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, in which the two were promoting bipartisan cooperation, about former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s comment this week that civility won’t work until Dems win.

“I would love to see us return to civility,” Clinton told CNN International, adding, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

“Bullsh*t PR Stunt by a Narcissistic Pop Star”

The left is losing its collective mind over Kanye West’s visit to the Oval Office with celebrities from Hollywood and talking heads on primetime doing whatever they can to attack West while ignoring the substance. Perhaps the unique position he is in to give voice to minority issues is what galls them the most. Comedian Billy Eichner tweeted: “How any serious journalist or news outlet could cover this Kanye West nonsense instead of climate change, voter suppression in Georgia, or any number of issues that actually matter . . . [is] shameful.” What’s shameful is the chattel slavery mentality the left continues to hold regarding blacks in America with their presumption that anyone who holds an unconventional viewpoint is by default an “Uncle Tom.”

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Hollywood celebrities from Josh Gad to Billy Eichner to Chelsea Handler lost their minds Thursday, attacking and mocking Kanye West after he visited the White House and expressed his opinions in the Oval Office.
Kanye West told reporters in the Oval Office that President Trump was “on his hero’s journey right now.”

“He might not have thought he’d have a crazy mother-fucker like Kanye West run up and support, but best believe — we are going to make America great,” West added.

“Kanye West says he thinks of Trump as a father. Guess who doesn’t think of Kanye as a son?” Chelsea Handler tweeted.

“How any serious journalist or news outlet could cover this Kanye West nonsense instead of climate change, voter suppression in Georgia or any number of issues that actually matter and not this fucking bullshit pr stunt by a narcissistic pop star I’ll never know. Shameful,” comedian Billy Eichner tweeted.

Polls Aren’t Favoring Senate Democrats

Unfortunately, the Brett Kavanaugh political theater is not working out as the left thought it would. Instead, new polling data reveals that nine seats are no longer “toss-ups” in the U.S. Senate race as was reported one month ago but now just seven. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is gaining ground despite the best efforts of Democrat Beto O’Rourke, who is trailing by as many as nine points. The new numbers according to Real Clear Politics put 50 seats safely in Republican hands, a nightmare scenario for the left, as VP Mike Pence holds the tie-breaking vote when the senate is tied. Historically, the party in the White House is supposed to lose seats in midterm elections, but it seems this won’t be the case this time.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

According to new polling data, the Democrats’ scorched-earth strategy for delaying the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh not only failed to keep the textualist judge out of the Supreme Court, it appears to have destroyed their chances to gain the coveted 51-seat majority in the Senate.

Just a month ago, Real Clear Politics’ average of the key polls for all of the Senate seats up for election in 2018 listed 9 seats as “toss-ups” that could go either way. At that point, RCP gave Democrats 44 seats that were either safe or not up and Republicans 47 seats. Many of the nine toss-up seats were leaning Democrat.

But the electoral landscape has since changed significantly in the Republicans’ favor. After ceding two of the toss-ups to Republicans since the Kavanaugh circus a few weeks ago, RCP has now given the GOP one more. In other words, RCP now lists 50 seats as relative locks for Republicans. Vice President Mike Pence gives Republicans the tie-breaking vote.
